I do not own a kindle but I want to use the kindle app on windows PC and on Iphone. I have some books that were given to me that are in kindle format and I am able to pull them up on my windows PC app. I want to be able to sync them to my iphone but I am unable to do this because they are not in the archive. Is there a way to put books in the archive that I did not buy but that are in kindle format?

All of your books are in the amazon manage your kindle website which is the "archive". Will it sync? I don't know why not ask amazon?

It is not in my kindle website archive because I did not buy the books from Amazon. I was given them so now I am trying to figure out how to add them to my archive.

If they are not purchased from amazon you will not be able to sync them. You might be able to get them there some other way, though.

If you have a Kindle account with Amazon then you will have an email address for it. If you send documents to this address they will normally be converted to Kindle format, sent to your Kindle and, optionally, be added to you archive. Then you can download them to other Kindle devices and applications. The option to archive can be set from the Manage Your Kindle page on the Amazon web site but I think that the default is to archive everything.

I am not sure if this option is available to you unless you purchase a Kindle but it should work since Amazon would want to be able to sell you books even if you only read them on other devices.
